#15 – “False Start” – Jasper Johns – $84.6 million
This is one of those abstract paintings that we actually love. It is an interesting splash of various colors with typography included. This painting is way more interesting than #20 on our list. You can feel some kind of energy radiating from this painting, it is not sterile and minimalistic as #20 painting from our list.
This painting itself was completed in 1959 by an artist called Jasper Johns. “False Start” was sold at a private auction by a man called David Geffen to another man called Kenneth C. Griffin, for the price of $84.6 million.
